My mother :/ - January 24th 2011, 05:50 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of rape or abuse, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

The more I'm thinking about it the more I blame my mother for a lot of my mental health problems. When I was a child she had depression and she took a LOT out on me. I don't know if I should call her "mentally abusive" or not. I'll admit I was hard work as a child as I didn't really listen to my parents but she handled it in a very bad way.

I honestly remember her telling me as a child that she wanted to take an overdose so she wouldn't have to see me anymore. I also remember her telling me that she wanted to put me in a foster home. If I ever bring any of this up she will deny it. She used to tell me how "horrible" I was and how much of a bad person I was. I think a lot of my crap self-esteem come from this.

I'm tempted to tell my mental health nurse this but I know if my mother found out she would deny it and probably threaten to chuck me out.

I don't know what to do :/

You should tell the mental health nurse. Don't you have a confidentiality agreement with your doctors there? If so, they legally cannot tell your mother anything you've said, or else you can sue them.

Hey there

This was the same with my mum and dad. It's really great that you recognize what's happened.

I mean if it's something which upsets you or gets you down, then it could be a good idea to talk to your mental health nurse. Talking through it might help you to deal with it better. And at the end of the day you're nineteen so your worker shouldn't talk to your parents about it which means the only way of your mum finding out would be if you were to tell her.

Talking about things can really help so its worth the shot!

I hope you're okay.
Jessie <3

Re: My mother :/ - January 24th 2011, 06:37 PM

Thanks guys <3 Yeah, I think I will tell her tomorrow :/ The problem is I have house visits as we live quite a way away from the clinic. She normally talks to me in my room, goes downstairs and talks to my parents. She doesn't tell them everything we say but she does tell them a bit of what's going on.

I suppose if I asked her not to say anything she wouldn't.
